Here it is, the perfect dip for a sunny day!
This dip may surprise you. People who think pineapple is overpowering or don't like much spice usually find that this dip is irresitible! The cream cheese mellows out the tartness of the pineapple and the pineapple mellows out the spiciness of the pepper.
Depending on the style of pepper you use, you may want to add a little more or less to get the zest you desire!
